WEST MONROE -- A taste of the Old West has come to West Monroe, trying to raise money for a good cause.

If you haven't spotted them already, a couple covered wagons have parked right next to the Duck Commander store in West Monroe.

It's all part of a Wagon Trail Ride for Relay for Life, raising money for the American Cancer Society.

The man behind the wagon, Bob Kearney, said he's been doing this tour for five years, stopping from town to town to collect donations.

"We've got this collection deal and people donate to the Relay for Life and the past five years we've got together, between the relay team and our ride, we've got together right at $5,000 each year for the cancer society," Kearney said.

The wagon riders ride from Saltillo, Texas to the Monroe area and back every year, a journey that takes nearly eight weeks by horse.

They said if anyone would like to come out and donate, they'll be parked by the Duck Commander store until Tuesday.
